Poetry Friday x3

First- because it fits the weather (the freezing part, not the snowing part):

“It’s snowing still,” said Eeyore gloomily.
“So it is.”
“And freezing.”
“Is it?”
“Yes,” said Eeyore. “However,” he said, brightening up a little, “we haven’t had an earthquake lately.”
― A.A. Milne

 

Second-because all mothers should think their children are brilliant- an original poem from E.Boll after reading Ozymandias:
The Parthenon
E. Boll
January 14, 2013

 

Pure white stone trees stand tall atop a hill

Their sides ripple and dance with marble wave.

Spartans and Amazons circle its frill

Athena guarded those warriors brave.

 

Climbing stairs to see President Lincoln

A stone forest surrounds his giant throne.

One hundred twenty two score and five years done

The monument is a Parthenon clone.

 

But the temple in Athens is fading

Its stone is chipped, columns tilted and gray.

A victim of bombs and bullets raiding

Gunpowder brought destruction and decay.

 

Time, an invisible determined force,

Neither humans nor nature change its course.

 

Finally- because it is my birthday.
Chapter Six-In which Eeyore has a birthday and gets two presents. 

 

I'd love to hear your thoughts!
